CONSTRUCTION
a poem by John Eric Gulliksen

I built me a stone house
Battlements of towering granite
I built me
a fortress

I found me a friend-group
People who followed behind me
I gained me
an army

I went to the city
Won it and yet another
I built me
an empire

I looked in the mirror
Saw myself shining
I made me
a god

I looked in your eyes
Found something wanting
You have denied me
heaven
